Dear Officer Mendoza,


I know you're just doing your job, but did you really have to ticket me and everyone else on the block I parked on?

In retrospect, I realize that the street I parked on was marked for street cleaning on Mondays between 12 and 3 (it was 1pm). But I didn't see the sign when I got there, otherwise I surely wouldn't have parked there! I don't think all those other people who were parked there before me saw it, either!

I will refrain from the obscene check this time (but only since I did kind of deserve the ticket), but I am still not happy for having to pay you $45 for parking for 5 minutes to deposit a check at Washington Mutual (who also suck, but at least they had envelopes today, so they only kind of suck).

The only good thing about this scenario is that since I was able to deposit my money, at least I know I can pay for the damn ticket.

Thanks a whole lot.

What? No parking at a WAMU? That's utterly REDICKULOUS!

Well, next time you'll be that much more observant for the street cleaning notice, right? Shouldn't you be thanking them? :)

Grrrr....that's so frustrating. Almost like he was just scoping you out from a distance and then pounced as soon as you left your car.
